Support rising among US voters for Trump’s impeachment: Poll

The CNN poll conducted by SSRS shows that 41 percent of Americans support impeaching the Republican president, up from 37 percent last month. The shift on impeachment is mostly the result of growing support for it among Democratic Party voters; 76 percent favor it currently, up from 69 percent in April. Whites who hold college degrees have also increased their support for impeachment, CNN said. In surveys in April and March, fewer than 3 in 10 in that group favored proceedings, but that number has now climbed to 41 percent. A majority of US voters, 56 percent, say they disapprove of the way the president is handling his relationship with Democrats in Congress. Only 33 percent say they approve. Calls for impeachment have intensified following a press conference on Wednesday in which former US Special Counsel Robert Mueller undermined Trump and his allies’ claims of exoneration over alleged election collusion with Russia and Trump’s obstruction of justice during the Russia probe. The poll comes after the public release of a redacted version of the report from US Special Counsel Robert Mueller about Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 US presidential election. Trump is facing more investigations than any president before him. The survey found that the US public is divided on the question of whether the investigations Trump faces are justified by the facts, 47 percent say they are, while 44 percent say they are not. Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, the highest ranking Democrat in Congress, has resisted calls to open an impeachment inquiry into Trump. The speaker is reported to have said privately that it would be reckless to impeach Trump as the 2020 election approaches.
